Dear RRRRR,
I agree with Lucia. While Speech Therapists, who can help people who stutter, can presumably help someone lose a brei ( which is a learned habit of spech, not as complex as a stutter ) --- I wonder why one would want to lose it. many people consider it charming, like any other regional or other accent. And further to what Lucia says, I always think it's rather unfair that when an Englishman speaks French, we sound awkward and rather funny, whereas when a Frenchman speaks English he sounds sexy and romantic.
I suppose if you were in the livestoch business, specifically dealing in rooi ribbok ramme, there might be some tiny problem, but otherwise, think of this as a special feature of yours, not a handicap.
